On the one hand, you fill us with hopes and dreams for another year. On the other, your days drag on, are blanketed by snow and missing the one ingredient we so love about the holidays: family time.
Next year, though, we’re going to ride on the optimism. We’re going to do something beneficial with that lone long weekend (MLK) and take a trip to Tennessee vacation rentals.
There, in a rustic cabin overlooking the Monteagle and Sewanee Mountains, we’ll make hot chocolate, snuggle by the fireplace and take in views of the bluff. We’ll admire the workmanship that went into the space, from the soaring windows to the sturdy log-by-log construction.
We’ll cook big breakfasts and hearty dinners in that intimate kitchen.
And we won’t get mad at ourselves if we gain a few pounds.

Where should we go with a party of six?" No stranger to travel--and traveling with kids--she is a young mom who ODs on the Internet when it comes to planning family trips or buying clothes. Here's hoping she finds you the vacation you deserve.
